Porsche Cars North America is recalling 14 model year 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupes.
The front axle differential bracket may not have been tightened correctly. If it comes loose, the differential could cause damage to surrounding components.
Components such as the fuel tank or drive shafts may become damaged from the loose differential. Damage to the fuel tank can result in fuel leakage, which in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.
What to do
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will remove the front axle differential to check the screw threads, and to inspect surrounding components for any consequential damage.
Depending on the inspection result, the front axle differential will be reinstalled or replaced using new screw joints torqued to the required specification.
All work will be performed free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin August 25, 2020.
Owners may contact Porsche customer service at (800) 767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is ALA8.
